Jasper Morrison set up his London based Office for Design in 1986 after an education in furniture design at Kingston Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art. Morrison now divides his time between studios in Paris and London. Since the late 1980s Morrison has produced refined objects for everyday life and his original, intellectual approach to design has earned him many accolades. Industrial production applied to archetypal objects and a preoccupation with rational design, define Morrison’s oeuvre and this has won him commissions for trams, tableware, electrical goods, furniture and crockery. Morrison has always been interested in the influence objects have on everyday atmosphere and cites the early Modernists as what first inspired him to design.
